Firefox crashes.....again.

Firefox 3 was supposed to be the greatest browser ever. Saying that's an exaggeration is putting it mildly.
I've written a few blogs on Firefox 3;
D is for Download Day
I did my part, as usual.
Firefox 3 review.
After using it since June, I am rather unimpressed with the browser. As a matter of fact, I believe it's really a pisspoor piece of work.
It crashes several times a day and it hangs more often than I can count. It's even gotten to the point that I've started using IE more and more.
I'm not the only one having this problem. Googling firefox crashes yields more than 630,000 results.
Someone at wrote,
"I don’t know what is going on, but ever since I installed Firefox 3, it has been crashing occasionally. From time to time, when I shut it down, I get the Mozilla Crash Reporter window popping up. Has anyone else encountered this problem? Any suggestions? Here’s a screenshot of the Mozilla Crash Reporter that appears when Firefox Crashes."
The poster received 69 responses.
Going to Mozilla for an answer is usless.
As one person wrote, it's a sad day when one prefers IE over Firefox.
Oh even crashed while I was posting this.

On occasion i have a crash report on closing FF. Couple of times when jumping out of streaming vid sites. But that could well be video card/buffer or cpu .
If you research it you will most likely see vista and FF add-ons as complicating things.
